The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Lace and Seam Binding Flower Ornament:

Measure and cut the materials.

Cut 12 inches each of the seam binding and the lace.

Cut two pieces of yarn, one 18 inches and one 12 inches long.

Insert the 18-inch piece of yarn into the fold of the seam binding.

Thread the needle and add a knot in one end of the thread.

Beginning at one end, insert the straight side of the lace between the layers of the seam binding.

Begin sewing the seam binding and lace together using running stitches.

If you would like more help with the running stitch, go to the funEZ How to sew stitches page to get your own free e-book.

The running stitches do not need to be dainty.

They can be longer—roughly 1/4-inch long.

Lace and Seam Binding Flower Ornament step 4 use long running stitches

At the end of the seam binding and lace, knot the thread close to the seam binding and trim the thread.

Pull on both ends of the yarn and gather the lace and seam binding into a circle.

Pull the yarn taut and tie a simple bow.

Adjust the lace and seam binding into a flat circle with the ends of the lace hidden behind the bow.

Insert one end of the 12-inch yarn through the hole in the center of the Lace and Seam Binding Flower ornament.

Pull the ends even and tie a knot to form a hanging loop.

The Lace and Seam Binding Flower ornament is finished and ready to display.
